An NQC Christmas?

For better or worse, the NQC is trying to think a bit outside the box and get a little creative to keep the fans coming back to Louisville.  According to a press release sent out this morning, Tuesday is going to be Christmas themed at NQC.  Here are the details from the PR:

Christmas in September theme set for Tuesday, September 13th at the NQC


Tuesday, September 13th at NQC will be “Christmas in September” at NQC.  The day will start with a special “Christmas Morning” program at 8:30 a.m. hosted by Greater Vision and featuring Legacy Five, The Kingdom Heirs, Brian Free & Assurance, Sisters & Karen Peck & New River.  The Christmas theme will carry through the entire day and conclude with a special Christmas finale that evening.  It should be a lot of fun.

Never mind the fact that in early to mid September it’s still blazing hot outside in the south.  Come and sing “Jingle Bells” in your shorts and flip flops!  In all seriousness, I’m not real sure how well this will go over, as it just seems a little difficult to muster the “Christmas Spirit” right after Labor Day (even if Wal-Mart will be going all out in their Garden Center with Christmas decorations by then), but it’s an idea that’s worth a shot, and with the groups listed the music should be excellent.  Call me a bit skeptical, but in the now immortal words of Bill Gaither, “Why not?”

    Looks to me like there’ll be some product they’ll be selling around Christmas from this. “Christmas at NQC,” “A Southern Gospel Christmas,” etc.

  2. This was done at the Great Western Fanfest in VISALIA CA. it was very good. Yes we do have southern gospel in California!

  3. I think this is pretty funny, but maybe it’ll catch on at some level…

    This was tried at the Great Western Southern Gospel Fan Fest in Visalia, California, at the end of April this year. Yes, short sleeves and sunshine and flip-flops outside–but inside it’s dark, climate controlled and mood-set with decorations. I thought it went over well at Fan Fest–and apparently the promoters also thought it went over well enough for them to give it a shot at the granddaddy of conventions! It may not be a huge, smash hit–but variety is good, and I think it will go over well enough!
